Cheaper Fox Alternator Upgrade?

What are the alternatives to buying a PA or Powermaster High Output alternator for my 91GT? I've heard that a 94/95 alternator will work, but what else do I need?

late taurus 130 amp alt will bolt on after enlarging top mounting hole. use the harness from the taurus, everything bolts to starter solenoid. I get them at local pull yourself yards here for $18-20 bucks

I've done this swap once already myself.

Read this:
The Corral Tech

The easiest route to happiness is a trip to your local junk yard. Scout out a 94-95 LX/GT alternator, a stator plug, the alternator plug and approximately 6 feet of 8 gauge power wire.

Here's the stator plug, which can be found on the car, or also new from a number of sources.
1994-04 Mustang Stator Plug by PA Performance at LRS - Same Day Shipping!
Also, here's the alternator plug itself, also available form the donor car or secondhand:
http://www.paperformance.com/scripts...p?idproduct=55

The size of the alternator itself will fit onto the stock Fox bracket. You will have to notch the inside of the bracket which is made easy with the use of a die grinder or a dremel with a small cutoff wheel.

Best of luck, it's a great mod and you'll be happy with the results!

Wiring pictures

Could someone post some pictures of the wiring on the back of the alternator. Both my stock plugs have a white wire with a black stripe. I know one of them is the stator wire.

I have a new stator wire plug, and I have the alternator. Now I just need to figure out where to get a 4G wire to go from the post to the solenoid.

Once I cut the Black wires with the orange stripe, do they both get ring terminals and connected to the alternator post?

Thanks again, sorry I know this topic has been beat to death.
